waking into pain

leave a comment »

You’re in the place between sleeping and waking. Everything is peaceful. You’re drifting. You come closer and closer to consciousness. As you do, you feel a twinge. A stab here, an ache there. Your head, your hands. Your abdomen, your back. Your legs, your arms. It all starts to come back, all the pain that sleep, for once, let you forget.

Before you’re fully awake, you’re reaching for your pain meds and wishing that one day it would be better. But it never is.
